Should Braun Speak Up?


Two days ago I was watching PTI and Wilbon and Kornheiser were debating whether or not Ryan Braun should explain himself at his NL MVP acceptance speech? I too have been wondering this since the disappointing story went public.


Braun is a man, an athlete, and a competitor. I happen to agree with PTI, if Braun feels strongly that he did nothing wrong than he should go out publicly and fight it. Fans might support him. It is about time that we figure out a little better the difference between all performance enhancing drugs. It is not like Braun all of the sudden became a home run hitting machine (see Brady Anderson). Braun has always had power and the ability to hit well. Its time for Braun to be a leader for the league not just his teammates. Maybe more light can be shed on the situation and put an end to the asterisks that are the Steroid Era.

PTI, nice call.

And Let Us Say…Amen.
